Shield the exposed underbelly of your motorcycle to prevent damage from flying debris with the SW-MOTECH Aluminum Skid Plate Engine Guard.

The SW-MOTECH Aluminum Engine Guard / Skid Plate will help protect the underbelly and engine case of your motorcycle from stone chips and debris.

  • Aluminum construction.
  • Heavy-duty, light-weight protection.
  • 4mm thick underbody plating.
  • 2.5mm thick Black powder-coated side walls.
  • Cut-out for oil drain screw.

Optional SW-MOTECH Skid Plate Toolbox Available.

Important note: The Honda CB500X requires special caution when removing the forward lower engine mounts. Even with the remaining engine-mount bolts still in place, removing both forward mounts will cause the engine to sag in the frame. How do we know? We tested the SW-Motech Engine Crash Guards (click here for the 2016 CB500X application) and the SW-Motech Aluminum Skid Plate Engine Guards on a 2016 CB500X and had difficulty installing the mounting hardware. In fact, the frame/engine misalignment made it impossible to insert either the accessory hardware or the stock bolts and spacers. The misalignment is reduced if you remove only one engine-mount bolt at a time, but the real solution is to support the engine from below any time you remove the mount bolts.

Review by CT Bill
Install was straight forward, and I can confirm it fits without modification with the OEM center stand, as well as the Givi crash bars! Quality and fit is excellent. The bike in stock form is no enduro or dual-sport, but having under body protection for the sump and cat makes me feel better on dirt, gravel, and forest roads. Not sure it would be up for real stump and rock bashing though.
Have a torque wrench handy... (Posted on 2015-11-05)
